Deliver a rich personalized HD experience to every screen
Online video and pay TV are converging as consumers seek richer multimedia services. Connected devices like tablets, smartphones and smart TVs are fueling this trend by bringing high-definition TV to more people and places than ever before.
Service providers want to capitalize by blending pay TV and online video services and extending them across multiple devices. With next-generation multiscreen TV and video offerings, service providers can become stronger, more competitive players in the video value chain.
But service providers have to address some major challenges to launch successful multiscreen services. One of the biggest challenges is to find cost-effective ways to prepare and deliver very large HD video streams so that they reach every device securely and with the right format.
